Just so you know....there are only 14 sleeps until Christmas Eve! Fourteen! AGH!!!
Last week was rough. We had a family crisis. My sister is having a hard time dealing with the break-up of her relationship. We wish so much that she lived closer so that we could hug her and make her some Hot Chocolate! We love Aunt Bobbi (Ba Boo as Erick calls her) so much! We just want her to be happy again.
The furnace stopped working on the coldest day of the week. I didn't realize it until it was 65 degrees in the house. But the good news is that the property management company sent someone out right away and we were warming up again in no time. Here is Alex all cuddled up on the couch!
Look What I Found Under The Christmas Tree!
Mallory was trying so hard to crawl all week, but could only go backwards. She kept ending up under the tree! And was not happy about it. She worked so hard all week! She whined and cried and got stuck and cried some more. It doesn't help that there are also TWO FRONT TEETH coming up too. This is really great because that is all she wanted for Christmas.
I was getting Mallory up from her nap and had put out the baby food I was going to feed her, when I came downstairs to this:
Then...he acted like he was just trying to help me out!
He really is a great helper!
He loves to sweep the kitchen.
Give Mallory toys.
Take them away.
And hugs and kisses are FREE!
But wait....there's more!
In addition to all of this......Keith was in Alabama on a business trip. The kids HATE when he is gone and each day they were a little more cranky. And then....because the week had not been rough enough. My car wouldn't start on Friday Night when I went to go to the grocery store. But when I think I can't take another minute and I think I am going to lose my mind.
I look at this precious face.....
And then I feel so much better! I thank god everyday for this little surprise!
She is the light of my life!
